GroupMe Issues
« on: November 11, 2022, 02:14:57 PM »
Anyone know what's going on with GroupMe lately?
In my circles, 90% of people are not getting 90% of their messages!
This has been going on for a few weeks already.
Is it no longer being supported?
Any help and/or info would be appreciated.

My family abandoned groupme for a while already, switched to manual created groups which you can't save to contacts.

Annoying because group me doesn't work and want to be able to save to contacts.... I once sent a group message from my message+ app on windows and, I don't recall exactly but may have sent something to some of the groups' recipients about a number they can save but I dont remember what I did to prompt that...

Wow this gives me validation bc weve been having big issues not receiving all the msgs on our group we thought it was one of our phones issues.
We gave it up for a reg group text. Not as good but works

Been having issues with delayed messages for years. Seems to go in waves.

fwiw if you want to see what messages you missed, you can log in to https://groupme.com/ or install the app on your phone to see them all (vs getting them via text where some are missing/delayed). There's also a windows app.

The most frustrating part for me is not receiving DDMS texts. I switched my family to remind, and find it 100% reliable. Way better than groupme ever was. It is officially made for schools to make announcements but I find it great for SMS chats.

You can set it up from the app or from remind.com. one of the big differences is that to manage it you need either the website or app, but for day to day use that's not needed.

How do you set that up that everyone sees everyone else's texts?

I don't remember exactly all the steps but sign up for an account and it should be pretty simple to set up.

The basic idea is that first you create a class and add all the phone numbers to the class. Everyone should get a text saying respond YES to join...

Then once everyone's in the class you can create a group chat with members in the class. Once set up the chat works similar to group me, just it actually works.

If you need more help let me know but it should be simple to set up.

It looks to me like it is a limit of 10 people in the chat is there a way to get more?

Wow I didn't even know that. My biggest group has 9 people. I just checked and I'm seeing the same thing. I guess that can be a pretty big limitation for some people.

Same with emojis and Hebrew characters. It's very annoying.
Don't even try it.

So I guess this is normal by them, any alternate ideas?

Remind allows emojis and Hebrew which is really great, but unfortunately only allows groups up to 10 (but no pictures)
